  • I have had 5. The first was 4 days late, second on his due date, third I was induced 5 days late, 4th day before his due date due to complications, and 5th was a schedule induction one week before my due date.

  • I delivered at 42 weeks 5 days. So not early at all.

  • Not early at all with my son, he was born on his due date
    2 days early with my daughter (but I think they might have had the date wrong)

  • About a week each time, that's when the first 2 came. The 3rd, I did have an induction scheduled due to blood clotting issues

  • My first son was born at 36 wks because my water broke. He had a lot of stomach issues (colic) and a herniated umbilical cord that eventually went away on it's own. He was also delayed in his speech. He did not utter an intelligible word until he was 2 and 1/2. His fine motor skills were also very delayed. He is 4 now and all caught up but we were pretty worried. He also had horrible, horrible, epic tantrums...which finally went away when his language developed. I totally believe his issues were related to being born prematurely.

  • My "earliest" baby was still at 41.5 weeks... lol
    Which is better than the 43 my oldest delivered at.

  • I had my oldest a day "late" but went into labor on my due date

    My youngest was induced a week early due to "health issues" that turned out to be a crock of crap and the german doctors just wanted to rush us.

  • 2 weeks compliiments of an induction..high bp along with some other minnor complications...main reason was the high bp

  • 36 weeks and 6 days due to contractions causing her heart rate to drop. She was perfectly healthy after my c-section. Now she is a rambunctious 3 year old. She never has had 1 problem other than being slightly smaller than normal children.
